Chocolate Carrot Muffins

Carrots have vitamins, minerals, beta-carotenes and antioxidants! Hence these Chocolate Carrot Muffins are ipso facto nutritious.

Don’t believe me?

Will you believe me if I say they are fluffy, chocolatey and delicious?

That they are – my friend. That they are.

Chocolate Carrot Muffins Recipe These muffins lived a full life of 2 minutes before being devoured by me, my brother, mom & friend. :D Unfortunately, my trusted camera breathed its last and I had to make do with the camera in my cell phone. Which probably explains the mediocre photographs in this post (and the next few). But hey, this recipe is a breeze to make, requires no eggs and takes just 5 minutes to put together. And they do taste pretty darn good!

More than the fluffy texture, I love the crust! A crispy crust facilitated by a genius move on my part – sprinkling brown sugar on the top of the cake batter! :D I know I’m no Chess player. But if I were and cooking was Chess, I would have Check-Mated the opponent! :P And since my jibber jabber makes no sense (even to me), I’m just gonna show you how I made the world’s best (ahem) Chocolate Carrot Muffins!
